Cristian's story

Cristian is a woman who works very hard so that her young daughter can get ahead. She is married to Sr. Juan Pablo, a laborer. Their daughter is a year old. Cristian makes bracelets, necklaces, and earrings. She also makes accessories for girls, such as bows and tiaras, and sells them to acquaintances and from her home. In addition Cristian sells candy, soft drinks, and offers video game machines.

She is requesting a loan to buy materials for making women’s accessories, but part of the money will be used to restock her candy business. Cristian says this is the first time she has received a loan and hopes that it will go well so that she can see her business grow gradually. Her goal for her business is to open a shop where she can sell women’s clothing and shoes.
